    Quoted from the link you posted. My highlights added.

    In order to increase deliveries of its most popular types of ammunition and bullets, Hornady announced that it will temporarily suspend production of 150 bullet types and 150 ammo types. IMPORTANT: These bullet and ammo products are NOT being discontinued. Rather, these less-popular, suspended items will simply not be produced for the remainder of 2013. By doing this, Hornady can reduce tool/machinery changes and thereby increase production of products in highest demand. On July 2nd, Hornady issued this statement:
    No need to panic, no conspiracy here to deprive people of ammunition or bullets. Just a sound business decision to focus on the demand for more popular ammunition and bullets.

    Never mind that every ammo/component manufacturer does this. Hornady's just the only one to give us fair warning.
